Choice Hotels International, Inc., in collaboration with Holladay Properties, LLC, opened the WoodSpring Suites Chicago Carol Stream. The new WoodSpring Suites hotel, located at 1160 N. Gary Avenue in Carol Stream, Illinois, is the second hotel in the Chicago metro that the two companies have opened this year following the WoodSpring Suites Chicago Tinley Park which opened in March.
“The WoodSpring Suites brand is a proven performer in the extended stay segment. Developers continue to notice the brand’s growth and Choice’s commitment to expanding in markets with significant long-term stay demand, such as Chicago, which has experienced steady job growth since 2010,” said Ron Burgett, vice president, WoodSpring Suites development, Choice Hotels. “Earlier this year, we worked with Holladay Properties to open in Chicago Tinley Park, which was the first WoodSpring Suites hotel to open following Choice’s acquisition of the brand in February.”
The newly constructed, four-story, extended-stay hotel is conveniently located near several hospitals and universities, including Wheaton College and Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital. The property is also within driving distance to downtown Chicago’s many corporate offices. The WoodSpring Suites Chicago Carol Stream features 123 rooms, each equipped with an in-room kitchen, a full-size refrigerator and free Wi-Fi. The property is 100 percent smoke free and offers free parking, an expanded lobby and guest laundry room.
This is Holladay Properties’ fourth WoodSpring Suites to open, joining the WoodSpring Suites Chicago Tinley Park, WoodSpring Suites Chicago Darien and WoodSpring Suites Chicago Romeoville. The company also has two others under development.
“The opening of the WoodSpring Suites Chicago Carol Stream is a testament to our confidence in the WoodSpring Suites product and Choice Hotels, which has done a tremendous job of advancing the brand since its acquisition,” said Tim Healy, chief operating officer, Holladay Properties. “We’re excited to a be a part of WoodSpring’s rapid growth and know this hotel, like our other WoodSpring properties, is perfect for extended-stay travelers visiting the great city of Chicago.”
